Aquila Ocotillo, Chandler, AZ Tuesday Jan 15

A quick lunchtime stop at the Aquila Ocotillo office park/golf course ponds in Chandler resulted in a lot of interesting bird sitings. Brown Pelican was perhaps the highlight, given that they typically dive-feed, and these ponds are relatively shallow.

In addition to those photographed below were Great Egret, Snowy Egret, Belted Kingfisher, Ruddy Duck, American Coot, Canada Geese, and a handful of other common species.

  1. I am painting a duck for an art contest. Is it okay if I use the first picture of the American Wigeon as a model for my painting?
